UMass Amherst Reportedly Spends $677K Stockpiling Abortion Drug
“Governor Healey’s office also did not respond to multiple emailed requests for comment on the funding source for the purchase”
This says a lot about the priorities of UMass, doesn’t it?
The College Fix reports:
UMass Amherst paid $677,250 for abortion drug stockpile
The University of Massachusetts Amherst paid $677,250 for a stockpile of 15,000 abortion drugs, according to a contract obtained by The College Fix through a public records request.
The request came after Democratic Governor Maura Healey asked the university to do so because of fears that a federal court might block the Food and Drug Administration’s decision to make the mifepristone drug easily available, according to a university news release.
The Fix reached out to UMass Amherst via email and asked about the source of the funding, if it plans to distribute the abortion drugs to students and how this action aligns with the school’s mission. It has not responded to two requests for comment in the past two weeks.
Massachusetts public universities must distribute or work with a third-party to hand out abortion drugs on college campuses after the state’s last governor, liberal Republican Charlie Baker, signed the mandate into law in 2022.
Marty Meehan, president of the University of Massachusetts system, said the decision was “student motivated,” according to the Boston Globe.
Governor Healey’s office also did not respond to multiple emailed requests for comment on the funding source for the purchase and why a university bought the drugs instead of a state agency.
An international pro-life group based in the United States criticized the decision.
Human Life International’s president noted that the university’s news release did not mention that “mifepristone kills preborn children and harms women.”
“Instead, the article is dressed up in euphemisms and oxymorons like ‘health care,’ ‘abortion medication,’ ‘safe and effective’ and the like,” President Shenan Boquet, a Catholic priest, told The Fix via email. He has degrees in theology and bioethics.

What if abortion drugs were as “safe and effective” as COVID vaccines?
Funny how careful Big Pharma can be with the products that Really Count.
Abortion drugs aren’t safe! They kill your baby.
24000 undergraduates, only ~50% of whom can get pregnant, and they have 15,000 doses? That’s a lot of unprotected sex.
Americans come in a wide spectrum. There are preppers, who prepare for everything, and then there are… these kids.
The contract is no longer available at the link provided. It has been removed from Scribd.
Shouldn’t a contract with a public university be public information? In wonder who removed it and how they justified doing so.
How did the university select the supplier for this contract? Does the supplier have any political connections?
Most importantly, has anyone affiliated with the supplier ever eaten at Chick-fil-A? If so, this abortion “medicine” is tainted and should not be used by any self-respecting leftist.
(In all seriousness, it would be nice if the article included the name of the drug supplier.)
This is a Quick Take, so we don’t include much beyond the link to the article and an excerpt. Our main column articles are much more detailed and comprehensive. 🙂
